Default Big Problem: I'm a newbie.

Alright, for Christmas I recieved a Team Losi XXX-s Graphite Plus, and have just gotten around to getting all of the internal organs installed.
Problem one: steering works, just turns the wrong way. I.E.- Left on the remote turns tires right.
I tried re-wiring, to no effect. Followed instructions to the letter.
Problem two: Motor was also working mirrored to what it should be. Now, it doesn't work at all.
If anyone has any help they could give, that would be great.

not sure what radio you have....

but most have a way to reverse channels...
if not...is it an option to remove the servos and flip them the other way?

if you changed wires around, you might have shorted something in the reciever. the wires to the servo can't be changed

I've gotta Futaba 3PM, and I am not sure how to reverse the channels. And no, the servo won't work if flipped over. I probably have to go and check the manual again for the radio.

I don't think I rewired anything to the servo at all. The servo doesn't work with the wires the other way.

according to Futaba that controller has servo reversing on all channels..... check the manual as I do not own that Tx


Check page 47 (at least that is where it is in the online manual)

Thanks for all your advice, the reverse was on the radio. Though I did get a defunct speed control and had to get that replaced.
Thanks again.
